The Lock gets only one-star for reasons below, But that doesn't means it's useless, It just requires buyer's good judgement as to where a weak lock may be suitable since the more robust locks are expensive.
Set combo fine, mixed up and closed my eyes, I had it open in 2 min. with my eyes closed... Useful as a visual deterrent but if hidden it won't require bolt cutters. I will only use them in places where I don't want to remember a key. e.g. Well house, storage box that is in sight of others, pipe gates, etc. You have to use the combo to get it to lock, it is not as secure as changing numbers before it's locked. It a bit pricey for what may be classified as a riveted powder coated toy.
These would be awesome if I didn’t have to reset them every time I want to lock them again. Now I’m at the point where the one refuses to reset. I can easily get it to open with the combination set, but getting it to lock again is another story entirely.
UPDATE: I found the solution: One must have the lock set to the open combination in order for the loop to begin to go down into the shaft again, then quickly change to a non-opening combination for it to lock again. This is absurd for when one doesn't want others to be able to see their combination. I have to literally leave the lock on the opening combination while it is unlocked until I'm ready to close it again. Poor privacy. It's a good thing I use it for a shed in my backyard. DO NOT purchase if you need your combination to be private in a public area.
After using for a week with no problems, I removed the lock for a couple hours, and it would not lock. Tried resetting the code, and the pin broke, with the end result being that the shackle would no longer fit over the lock. Not happy with the purchase, as it lasted about a week without needing replaced.
Bought 2 to secure parts of my warehouse and enclosed trailer. 1 failed within 5 days. It will no longer close into the lock slot. Anyone could break into these with a blunt object. I knew this going into when i bought them. I have high security well before the door i put them on and have full insurance on anything behind these doors so i was not concerned. I bought them so when i received deliveries they were easily readable by the driver and easy to open. They worked for this reason but one of them was poorly made and would not lock itself after a few days. These will not stop a robbery so if you do not have insurance on the product or further security systems do not use this product.
I was pretty disappointed with the quality of this product. I bought it to use as my property lock for other people to have access to enter to complete their services without me having to drive down and open it with our key. It worked for a bit then it was hard to lock it back, the lock will opened when pulled without the combination being set, had many issues with it when I thought it was supposed to facilitate the process. We used this lock for two weeks and then it didn’t work.
These locks work but they feel extremely cheap. I do not have faith in their ability to secure anything. I sincerely doubt that they will age well outside and completely expect to have to buy new locks within a year or two. Don't go for these. Go with a name brand.
So one of the locks does not work straight out of box. I spent 20 minutes thinking I was doing something wrong. It’s impossible to turn the numbers when the shackle is in the setting position. I then went to try the other and it took literally one minute to set. So if yours are not mechanically challenged then they are a breeze to set. For the price, at least one works.i guess.
I ordered two locks one works fine the other is defective I can’t set the code when it’s in code setting mode as u turn the numbers change. I don’t have time to return the product at least one works fine
